The West Jefferson Lions Club is seeking art submissions from Ashe County citizens of all ages for a "Christmas Tree 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run" t-shirt art contest. The art will be judged by local Ashe County citizens to determine winners which will then be printed on t-shirts to be given to all race finishers on the day of the race. The contest will feature two winning submissions: one to be placed on the shirt for the 5k race, and one for the 1-mile fun run shirt.

Our goal is to have art work that represents the local area, the holiday season, and artists, the West Jefferson Lions Club, and our Christmas tree partners.

The Lions Club motto is "We Serve", with an emphasis on assisting persons with visual and/or hearing problems.

Submitted art work will need to be a maximum of three distinct colors, a maximum size of 8 1/2 x 11 inches, and may be in pencil, paint, watercolor, crayon, marker, or charcoal.

Submissions may be sent to

Lions Club President
Zshawn Phillips

or you may call 828-773-4407 to arrange delivery or ask questions.

The Lions Club reserves the right to reject any artwork which is deemed offensive or graphic in nature. Please remember this is a family friendly event.
